“The coach has understood that we play better with three at the back” -Juvefc.com

Last night, Juventus emerged victorious against Inter for the first time in more than 18 months.

The Bianconeri survived an early onslaught from their visitors before launching into two counter-attacks to seal the match in their favour.

Filip Kostic was probably the man of the match with his two assists and an overall vibrant performance, but Gleison Bremer was another big performer.

Last summer, most observers expected the Brazilian to sign for Inter, but in the end he joined the Bianconeri.

On Sunday, the 25-year-old made a timely return from injury to produce a solid performance at the back alongside compatriots Danilo and Alex Sandro.

The Bianconeri earned their fourth straight Serie A victory since switching to a three-man defence, with Bremer explaining that Max Allegri believes it is the most suitable system for his team.

“Today was an important game, in a complicated week. He was coming off an injury, he had a fever and he was in doubt”, revealed the defender in his post-match interview with Sky Sport via ilBianconero.

“I told the coach that I want to play. We did well defensively, and thank God we won.

“If we train well enough, we can also play with the defense of four. But with the squad we have, the coach has understood that we play better with three behind.

“The others are ahead in the standings. But we have pride and character. We have to train and do more to win something.

“I came here to Juventus and I don’t have the background to tell others how to work. Slowly but surely, we will get the best of us.”
